The AppleFax service mentioned in TidBITS-254 is also available via anonymous FTP! All of the files are in Common Ground MiniViewer format. They include lots of great information such as 50 new features in System 7.5, and why you should use Virtual Memory if you have a Power Mac. Make sure to use the Color/Grayscale setting if you print to a PostScript laser printer or some of the text will not show up.

In addition SK Suh <sksuh@eworld.com> comments that the AppleFax 800 numbers do work in Canada.
